So sadly I may be new to some of you and to others I may seem like a bad uncle who only stops by once a year to make the party awkward. Either way HELLO!
It has been about 5 months since my last post on here which contained the beginnings of my new business called Brick House Builds LLC. The builds that go on consist of pre-90s Japanese motorcycles that I build into cafe racers, bobbers, brats, scramblers, and whatever else fits the bill. Since the last post I have…
Whats up guys and gals!? I haven’t been on here in what seems like forever but that doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about the blog, the members, or buying diecast for even a second so don’t you worry!
Believe it or not I AM still alive and I still occasionally buy some cars to share with you all. Here are the latest:
So I’m on a Japanese kick and have been getting back into customs for the moment! Last week I finished a sweet Hako Skyline that was intended to have a homebuilt weekend racer vibe to it. Since it worked so well I decided to give the same treatment to a Kenmeri.
This particular custom Skyline took me about 2 years to actually finish and I am glad I did. This was the car I used to demonstrate some basic custom techniques on a few How-To custom articles I put together. Once it was stripped it just sat...and sat.....and sat tucked away in my “to-custom” pile until last week when…
Hmm, were to start....
We have a Group B XC90, a full tank of fuel, seats full of diecast, metal loaded in the cd player, and 800 miles to Albuquerque New Mexico for the 14th annual Matchbox Convention….lets do this!
Me and EL_ULY are on our way to represent LALD at the 14th Annual Matchbox Gathering. Took a quick pic of a wild Miura in the dirt after arriving in New Mexico.
This shot actually comes from a father and son who had bought some cars from me in the past who i ran into a couple days ago! Some great cars in this one!
So part of my daily routine it seems is going to my local Oreilly Auto Parts store to get car/motorcycle parts which never seems to end. At this store I have bought many diecasts from their small display and am always keeping an eye out there for new stock. Now this store has been around in my town since about 2007…
So, where to start....
Update numero 3 for the now coined “Adventurevette” that I bought in New Orleans and quickly broke after 30 minutes. If you haven’t been following along on the chaos the first 2 posts are below.
My sister just shared this story on my Facebook page and it is very interesting. A 69 year old man passed away leaving his home and all of its contents to the Church he belonged to. In that home they discovered over 30,000 diecast cars in varying scales. EVERY room floor to ceiling!
After the epic failure that was driving this pile from New Orleans back home to St. Louis I found some time to work on it last night.
Warning, this is a bit of a long read:
In honor of the man Phillip’s big day I suggest we all Post up sweet Porsches!
Sure, it’s a Bugatti...
I know this will be a pointless post but I just feel like typing something and showcasing what I have been doing with a couple of my project cars. Carnage inside!!
CHECK THIS OUT!! I was just cruising Facebook and found a sale post on a Mustang page featuring this home made racing simulator! He used the dash and console from a new edge mustang and mated a logitech racing wheel, pedals, and shifter to it! Seriously check this thing out.
